    Thanks, KQ! We might look at those anyway, but we definitely need a cooler mattress.

    Gimme some spring rebound
    Thanks, Core Shot - will definitely check out Saatva.

    Also, the WSJ has a great podcast on the Casper IPO and the mattress industry, especially all of these direct to consumer brands (Purple, Zinus, Tuft and Needle, etc.): https://www.wsj.com/podcasts/the-jou...3-74d8615a2de2

    First new mattress in 10 years this week. Foam Sweet Foam. Natural latex, build your own layers and zip it up in a cover. So far so good. Latex wins out by a thin margin based on our preferences. Smells like almond biscotti instead of a chemical spill. Way less of a "conforming" feel than I expected. I could honestly go for just a bit more of that on the top layer after sleeping on memory foam for years. But we have the option of swapping out layers during the first however many months.

    Great customer service so far.

    Set up took about an hour, all told.

    Heavily considered air beds. Wouldn't go back to memory foam.

    I went w avocado. The latex mattress is stiffer and take some time to adjust but once you do itís all good.

    That's fine, assuming you've got consent from the coach...

    They have a lot of options, what build did you pick? Why?

    Did you notice its way thinner than any other brand?


    Purple has a weird powder they keep changing on their mattress cores.
    Satva and tuft are fine. I like the tuft feel better.
    Zinus is a good deal.



    Random idea.
    I've found krill oil has helped my sleep lately. My joints just hurt less.

    God, that would take me a long and boring time to write. Their site has a bunch of good q&a on choosing layers. And if you email them, they'll help you design it.

    I went firmer than I was advised by them, and it's exactly what I expected. Their advice is on point. I think it would have been more comfortable than my selection, but I wanted it firm (that's what she said).

    Yes and no. Definitely no more complicated than dialing in a ski quiver. They give you a baseline game plan that's solid and you can tweak it from there. Biggest bed is 5 layers.

    From top down, (D for Dunlop, T for talaylay, then M, medium, F firm, XF Xtra firm, etc) mine was

    MT
    FT
    XFD
    XFD
    XXFD

    Wife's was
    MT
    MD
    FD
    XFD
    XFD

    I weigh 220 and sleep on stomach 80 percent of the time. She's 130 and a side/back sleeper. So far, it seems that we are pretty close to dialed. If I swap a layer, it will be the 2nd one for MD (medium Dunlop) like wife has.

    I have slept on concrete that was softer than the softest Zinus. It sucked. I was afraid the damn thing had shattered my hip bone.

    Oddly enough a friend (who didn't know I just bought a bed) sent me this today just because he thought it was interesting.

    Definitely worth a read. Or a skim.
